What is a zapper? A zapper is defined by Dr. Hulda Clark as a battery operated DC pulse (positive offset) generator with an output amplitude of 5 to 10 volts (open circuit) and a frequency between 10 Hz and 500KHz (10 to 500,000 pulses per second), with a current limited output. Note: Our Auto-Zap zapper puts out 2500 DC pulses per second with full 9 volt battery voltage, with a 1000 ohm current limiting impedance.
What does a zapper do? How does it work? According to Dr. Clark's research and our personal experience, the tiny zapper current subtly energizes the bloodstream. This enables the body to "take out the trash," including parasites large and small, bacteria and most viruses. It happens quickly, in about an hour. The white blood cells digest the dead invaders and they are flushed out via the kidneys.
Is it safe? Yes. Zappers have been used by hundreds of thousands of people of all ages for a number of years, with no harm reported. You may feel worse at the start as the parasites die off, but this is usually gone within a few days. Dr. Clark recommends against using the zapper early in pregnancy.
Should I still take the herbal parasite cleanse if I have a Zapper? You certainly may if you wish. The black walnut tincture is good for clearing your gut quickly. With the zapper alone it takes longer. If you have a serious concern, by all means take the herbs as well.
Are the kidney and liver cleanses safe if I'm zapping? Yes, according to Dr. Clark.
What are your recommendations for the use of the Zapper? Dr. Clark recommends daily use for the first month, with regular use after that. Many people use it every other day or so for maintenance. Our instructions cover other application hints, and we are as near as your phone or email if you have questions.
Can you give me a list of ailments/detoxifying/general health maintenance for which this machine is suitable? Legally we are not allowed to offer medical advice of any sort. Please see Dr. Hulda Clark's book, "The Cure for All Diseases," for a full listing. Her basic conclusion is that the zapper is an excellent general tonic and prophylactic (preventative) tool.
Why are some "zappers" cheaper than others? Although, as with anything, generally you get what you pay for, we have a variety of models with a wide range of prices. All of our zappers have been hand-picked and were chosen because they offer excellent quality with extremely low failure/return rates, plus they are all based on Dr. Clark's research. These products are designed for lifetime purchase and use. They are not cheap disposables to be used for a while and then thrown away and purchased again.
Why don't you supply wrist bands with all models? Some people (and manufacturers) feel they don't work as well. The wrist bands have been tested and used for a number of years now and some people still find them inadequate, citing the following problems:
Inadequate contact area: they contact best at the outer and inner edges of the wrist, not on the flat top and bottom areas. Handholds and foot pads give much larger contact area.
Inadequate contact pressure: the straps cannot press hard enough to firmly contact the top and bottom of the wrist, or they would cut off circulation to the hand.
Inadequate moisture to ensure good contact: it is very difficult to keep the wrist band contact area moist for the duration of the zapping session. Dr. Clark recommends keeping damp paper towel layers between skin and contact to prevent ions from being driven into the skin. This is very inconvenient to do with wrist bands.
We supply both types of units to give you a choice. Our Auto-Zap, the RSG-1 Combo, and the RSG-4 Sweep Zapper come with the copper handholds. The Zapper C3i, GammaWave Generator, and the Super Zapper DeLuxe 2006 Biowave Generator have wrist straps. We've personally used both types and still haven't decided which is better. The wrist strap units are definitely easier to use, while the handhold units are more flexible. You will have to decide which is better for you until more definitive answers come along. Also, don't overlook our Terminator Zapper. It doesn't use handholds or wrist straps and is probably the easiest and most convenient zapper to use. We also have a variety of Handholds, straps, conductive slippers, and contact pads that can be attached to most of our zappers.
By the way, if you decide to buy a wrist band unit, be aware that most cannot connect to hand holds or foot pads if you want to use them. Their wires end in snap fasteners instead of alligator clips. It's easy to make a new set of wires with alligator clips, though. A quick visit to any Radio Shack can supply all you need very cheaply.
What are foot pads? Foot pads are a pair of contact plates about 3"x 12" made from flat sheet metal (22-26 gauge) or even aluminum kitchen foil. They are held by the copper alligator clips that normally connect to the copper handholds. Fold a paper towel on top of each pad, then dampen them with about a teaspoon of warm water. Place your feet on top of the plates and hit the Start button. Foot pads work well as you use a computer, read or watch TV.
Do you supply footpads? We do not supply foot pads because they cost more to ship than to obtain at a local sheet metal shop. Use aluminum foil to test the concept, and for traveling. We do offer Conductive Slippers with dome snaps for easy connection to most of our zappers.
Why does the Auto-Zap use 2.5 kHz when Dr. Clark's circuit produces 30kHz?. Because it works better at 2.5 kHz. This was confirmed in October 1995 with Dr. Hulda Clark herself. The lower frequency allows deeper penetration of the current due to the "skin effect." Tests with a local naturopath have shown a marked increase of effectiveness against fungi, with no sacrifice in effectiveness on other critters. If you check the top of page 15 in Dr. Clark's books, you will see that the frequency range she gives for zapping is from 10Hz to 500,000 Hz.
Why does the Terminator zapper use 15 Hz? Because it works better! As mentioned above the lower frequency allows deeper penetration of the current due to the "skin effect."
Why do you recommend using the Terminator continuously for days on end? The designer of the Terminator developed a method of relaxing the body's natural defenses against electric current. It's this resistance that makes a zapper uncomfortable for some people to wear for very long. Some researchers have found that long periods of zapping is sometimes crucial in overcoming more virulent parasites, such as Lyme disease and genital herpes.
Other zapper makers have increased the current of their zappers to try to get more benefit. The result is their zapper is more effective in the short term, but is much more uncomfortable to wear, so very few people persevere with it. The Terminator can USUALLY be worn up to 24 hours per day without problem after an initial detox has been completed over a period of a few days to a week or so. WARNING: If you attempt to use the Terminator too long, too quickly, you may experience significant burns on your skin. You MUST give your body and your skin time to acclimate to the Terminator to prevent problems. DON"T EVEN THINK about using it for more than a few hours at a time for the first few days. ONLY USE OVERNIGHT AFTER YOU KNOW YOU CAN HANDLE IT!
Do your Zappers have negative pulses coming out? No, none whatsoever. They fully meet Dr. Clark's specification for a "positively offset" DC signal.
What about AC adapters instead of batteries? A friend wrote, "I am interested in your zapper, but I read another zapper info page and got confused. He claims that using an AC adaptor (and his power supply circuit) is better than using a battery. Help."
Dr. Clark is adamant about battery power for safety, and I agree. The higher output voltage is not an advantage either, according to Dr. Clark's research: she specifies 5 to 10 volts. On page 15 of her book, The Cure for All Diseases, Dr. Clark states:
"Subsequent testing showed it [the zapper effect] was not due to some unique design, or special wave form produced by the device. It was due to battery operation!Any positively offset frequency kills all bacteria, viruses and parasites simultaneously given sufficient voltage (5 to 10 volts), duration (seven minutes), and frequency (anything from 10 Hz to 500,000 Hz)."
I think the reason some like AC power is that it stops battery life complaints from customers. The manufacturer of our Auto-Zap took a different route. They made the Auto-Zap so efficient it goes a year and a half on one 9 volt battery if used one hour a day. Our other zappers will usually last for months on one battery with daily use.
Is the zapper like a Rife device? No, the Rife "pad type" devices such as the AstroPulse Model D and others are simply overpriced ($1295-1995 US) AC signal generators. They do not "zap", because they do not put out DC pulses like the Auto-Zap zapper.
By the way, note carefully the "Money back guarantee" AstroPulse offers: you get 75% of your money back if you return the unit within 30 days. They keep 25% of your money (enough to buy several zappers!) for "restocking."
What is the best time to zap ? Any time is fine. I usually strap on a unit whenever I'm in front of the TV for any length of time or have an hour or so that I'm going to be sitting relatively still. Zap with foot pads first thing in the morning or put the foot pads under a desk at your computer. If I'm too busy during the day, I sometimes grab a zapper as I go to sleep. The auto-timing units are great for that since it times the complete cycle for you, all you do is hit the start button. With the non-timed units make sure you use them for the recommended 7-20-7-20-7 minute cycle or use continuously at least an hour. Find a way that works well for you.
How does the Auto-Zap compare to the others available? I am having some difficulty selecting the most appropriate model. The Auto-Zap goes much farther than the circuit in Dr. Clark's books (which is in 99% of the zappers offered on the Web). I use and recommend the Auto-Zap zapper for these reasons:
- it has a fully automatic timer built in to do an approx. 60 minute cycle recommended by Dr. Clark
- the lower frequency penetrates deeper
- it gives over 500 hours of zapping on a single 9 volt alkaline battery: about 10 times longer than the competition (18 months if you use it one full cycle per day)
- it has a failsafe sensor LED light to show when you have good contact and proper connections
- it is ruggedly built with full protectionagainst static electricity and reversed battery damage
- it has a beeper to tell you when it is turning the pulse output on and off (so you don't have to hold the hand-holds during the 21 minute rest periods)
- it has an automatic battery load test every time you turn it on
How does the Terminator Zapper compare to the others available? The Terminator is a totally unique zapper with features not found on any other model as far as we know. The Terminator uses a 15 hertz (not 15K or 30K, etc.) frequency for excellent penetration. It also has a Neodimium magnet, 2 spherical crystals, an Orgone generator, and a Mobius strip. It's very small and has no handholds or wrist straps to hold onto or strap on. The electrodes consist of two pennies bonded to the case. You simply put the unit against your skin anywhere on your body and turn it on. It can be stuck into a sock against your ankle or in your waistband, use a sweatband to hold it against your wrist, or use a glove and slide it inside against your palm. Basically, anywhere you can put it where the pennies/electrodes are in contact with your skin is okay. The recommended use is full-time, 24 hours per day for a full month (an initial detox period of 30 minutes to a few hours per day for a few days is highly recommended), then use as you see fit. It's easy to wear and has minimal impact - the easiest to use Zapper ever.
Will they let me through airport security with a zapper? Although we can't guarantee anything, we have had numerous customers take zappers along on trips without problems. You might want to put the unit in your checked bags and make sure you let baggage inspectors know you are carry a "bio-feedback relaxation" device.
Can I use the zapper while taking antibiotics? Yes, it does not conflict according to Dr. Clark and others.
What is "plate zapping"? Recently Dr. Hulda Clark has announced that the effect of the zapper can be intensified and targeted to specific parasites in specific organs by "plate zapping." A box with two metal plates on top (sold by Self Health Resource Center as the "ZapPlate") is connected to one lead of the zapper and slides of the parasite and target organ are placed on the plates. See the next question for more details. The ZapPlate is simply two metal plates on a plastic box, wired together, with an RCA phono jack on the side. You can make your own: it is just like the Syncrometer plate box supplied with the Syncrometer from Self Health and described in the book.
How do I do "plate zapping"? "I ordered the test plates and digestive slides from Self Health. I have them now but I can not figure out what to do. I want to target my wife's stomach and its contents. Do you know how I would hook up a Zapper with the plates and the slides? You simply plug the wire from the test plate box into the socket on your Zapper where the wrist strap or copper handholds normally go. Then plug the original zapper plug into the back of the new plug: it has a socket that allows this. Plug in the other wires as usual.
Place the stomach tissue slide on one plate and the bacteria slide on the other. Then grab the handholds and zap as usual. According to Dr. Clark, the zapping ("plate zapping") is now targeted more effectively to the bacteria in the stomach.
If a known pathogen was in a known body part, would it work better if the hand-holds were nearer that body part instead of hands? It might. Dr. Clark's recent work suggests that the zapper effect can be intensified or localized by "plate zapping" - see above.
Do you recommend using damp paper towel around the hand holds, or to hold them as they are? Yes, wrap them as we instruct you. DO NOT hold the bare metal, as the electrical signal could drive metal ions into the skin. Always use at least two layers of paper towel but no more.
Does it hurt to put the hand-holds on other parts of the body instead of using hands: is it as effective using it on arms, chest or abdomen, legs or feet? The effect seems to be systemic via the bloodstream, but feel free to experiment. Try to get at least four square inches of solid contact area on each contact point to prevent skin irritation.
Do you give full instructions re frequencies used for each health problem? The single frequency we use is all it takes. According to Dr. Hulda Clark's latest research, the zapper stimulates the bloodstream and immune system in a subtle way, enabling your own body to "take out the trash", including parasites, bacteria and most viruses. The pulses from the zapper do not electrocute anything, as they are a safe low-voltage and low-current signal.
Does having metal anywhere in the body (such as crowns on one's teeth) affect the benefits of using the zapper? Not that we are aware of, as the zapper seems subtly to stimulate the bloodstream and immune system, according to Dr. Clark's research.
Are there any long-term side effects from long-term electrical current use on the body? One hears of clusters of child cancers in areas close to major power lines, for instance. None have been observed or reported, as far as we know. Power line effects are due to high strength alternating magnetic fields, while the zapper uses very weak DC current pulses similar to natural nerve impulses. Zappers have been used successfully with kids as young as 1 month.
Can I use the zapper to make colloidal silver? No. Colloidal Silver makers are a different item. For that use our Silver Maker or the Silver Pulser.
The shiny copper pipes that you hold onto tarnish quite quickly- is that normal?Also, how often should you replace them? The handholds last indefinitely. The tarnish or darkening is harmless, and does not affect their effectiveness. You can remove it by soaking the pipes in a cup of warm vinegar with a teaspoon of salt in it or using any type of scrubbing pad. We rarely do that, though.
